NOTICE OF REMOVAL OF DOMESTIC SECTION 214 APPLICATIONS FROM
WC Docket No. 12-207 and 12-215The Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) has removed the applications listed in this notice
from streamlined treatment pursuant to the Commission’s streamlined procedures for domestic section
214 transfer of control applications.1 Section 63.03(c)(1)(v) of the Commission’s rules provides that, at
any time after an application is filed, the Commission, acting through the Chief of the Bureau, may notify
an applicant that its application is being removed from streamlined processing where the Commission

On August 15, 2012, the Department of Justice, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
with the concurrence of the Department of Homeland Security (collectively, the Executive Branch
Agencies), filed letters requesting that the Commission defer action on the domestic section 214
applications in WC Docket Nos. 12-207 and 12-215 while they review potential national security, law
enforcement, and public safety issues.3 The Bureau is removing the applications from streamlined review
in response to the request filed by the Executive Branch Agencies. Final action on the applications should
be expected after the Commission has received notification from the Executive Branch Agencies that the
evaluations have been completed, but not later than 180 days from public notice that the applications were
accepted for filing.4
